Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of NAND Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, and South Korean fabless semiconductor company Novachips Inc. announces a development project to make the dedicated Automotive Solid State Drive (SSD) based on Novachips SATA 6Gbps SSD controller, NVS3600.

Super Talent is a leading manufacturer and provider of Automotive SSD that currently delivers the SATA 3 6Gbps-based automotive SSD as the main storage device of the AVN system mounted on a luxury car. It is the world’s first SSD mounted on the AVN system for regular cars.

The Automotive SSD market demand is expected to continue to grow, much as the SSD market has dramatically grown in last three years. This growth can be explained by the high IOPS of SSDs, which can guarantee the performance into the different paradigm of multimedia for automobiles. Physical reliability is also key factor of automotive SSDs. Super Talent has chosen the right industry to build product for as the annual market size for automotive SSD is expected to reach 25 million units by year 2017.

BiTMICRO revealed today its next-generation SSD Talino ASIC Architecture. This revolutionary two-tier architecture will be the basis for the company’s upcoming maxIO line of I/O accelerators and solid state drives.

The company’s new architecture begins with their Talino™ Quad Core ASIC controller, which integrates embedded processors with a high speed multi-bus design to achieve maximum performance. A single Talino SSD controller can reach up to 400,000 random IOPS at 4KB and can perform up to 4,096 concurrent flash operations. To complete the architecture, the Talino controller connects with several of BiTMICRO’s new ISIP™ ASICs.

“One of the innovative attributes of the Talino architecture is its ‘building block’ design. A single Talino ASIC can connect to as many as 60 ISIP chips, each connecting to up to eight flash die,” states Zophar Sante, VP of Marketing and Sales. “Multiple Talino ASICs can easily interconnect via a PCIe switch to create 1U, 2U and 3U complete storage systems with enormous capacities and blistering performance. These Talino-based storage systems can use 'off the shelf' front-end file systems that support FC, FCoE, iSCSI, NFS, CIFS, Ethernet and can also include volume management, virtualization and storage services software.”
